Int. Traditional Games Society, founded in 1997 by Tribal College Presidents and Cultural Directors of Montana and Southern Alberta. Through the research, resurrection, and restoration of traditional games to Plains Indians tribal cultures, the Traditional Games Society has discovered a window to the past practices of educating American Indian youth for mental, physical, social, and spiritual survival. Many of those old time games are just as relevant for survival in the modern world. 200 years ago, the survival of American Indian families, bands, clans, and tribes depended on the youth learning survival skills from older tribal members.
